After mid-September, we are approaching the release of Switch OLED on October 8th.

I actually saw the device for the first time by watching the Nintendo trailer and reading the “practical” first impressions from the media.As emphasized by our friends in VGCThe new $ 349.99 / £ 309.99 model was exhibited at various retail stores nationwide, including Nintendo’s Tokyo store.

Alex Aniel, Japanese business manager for Limited Run, was able to grab some photos Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Running on the system-notice how “lively” the new 7.0-inch OLED screen is. Obviously, the small bezel has also been improved.

And here are some other shots-the first is the system behind the glass case (provided) @ nattu_ninmosa59), And the second batch of photos is also from Nintendo’s Tokyo store (Thank you, @bunnagashi)-Exhibition Splatoon 2 When Metroid dread With a new display.

The new dock that comes with the OLED model includes a LAN port that will allow you to receive updates. In fact, Nintendo has already released an update with system firmware version 13.0.0. Earlier this week, the company also announced that it would reduce the price of base model systems in some parts of the world. In particular, this does not include the United States.

Pre-orders for Switch OLED will start in Japan on September 24th next week. For the US and UK, see our handy Nintendo Life booking guide. Would you like to get a new Switch OLED model to be released next month? Please let us know in the comments.
